Sonora Chili Peppers
Scoville Heat Units: 300–600 SHU
The Sonora is an Anaheim variety with a very mild flavor. It grows to about 10” in length and up to 1 ½” wide, and although it matures to red, it is commonly used in its less mature, green form. They are perfect for chiles rellenos since the skin is thick and sturdy. The plant is known to be very disease resistant, making it relatively easy to grow. They are very common in the United States, especially the northwest.
The Sonora has many delicious uses. It is great for drying, and perfect for salads, salsas or pickling.
